Here and now ~ Buddha

The past should not be followed after,
And the future not desired.
What is past is dead and gone,
And the future is yet to come.

But whoever gains insight into things
Presently arisen in the here and now,
Knowing them, unmoved, unshaken –
Let him cultivate that insight.


Majjhima Nikaya III.187
